Configuring HTTPS inspection

Updated: February 1, 2011

Applies To: Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG)

Using Forefront TMG, you can inspect outbound HTTPS traffic in order to protect your organization from security risks inherent to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) tunnels, such as:

  • Viruses and other malicious content that could infiltrate the organization undetected.

  • Users who bypass the organization’s access policy by using tunneling applications over a secure channel (for example, peer-to-peer applications).

For general information about HTTPS inspection, including information regarding the certificates necessary for implementation, see Planning for HTTPS inspection.

The following topics describe how to configure and deploy HTTPS inspection.
